My First Year Growing BLUE HEIRLOOM Potatoes
I have grown potatoes for many years but this year, for the first time ever, I will be growing blue potatoes! I am so excited to try these unique tubers - just look at the beautiful purply blue color seen in the picture above.
I am also growing Yukon Gold, Red Skin, Kennebec and Russet potatoes but these Blue Heirloom are sure to be the star!
Blue potatoes are healthier for us because they are higher in flavonoid content like: quercetin, catechins and anthocyanidins.
These pictures are seed potatoes that are just a day away from being planted, which is why they have been cut.
